Open Into Wonder


X target creatures can't be blocked this turn. Until end of turn, those creatures gain "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, draw a card."

Thanks, there’s some really great suggestions! I haven’t even seen Open Into Wonder!! Aaagghh!! I am constantly thinking about adding Seedborn Muse and Alchemist's Refuge, one day I just might.

I’m not sure if I want to lean into the infinite combo, honestly I keep thinking of removing it just because the deck is a lot of fun without it (and my playgroup doesn’t have too many of them) but I really appreciate all the suggestions, and hopefully if I don’t use all those combos soneone else will.

With Nyxbloom Ancient or Mana Reflection in play, your commander goes infinite with Umbral Mantle and Sword of the Paruns. Allows you to make infinite and cast any Xspell an infinite amount of times. With both in play you can accomplish the same thing with Staff of Domination. BloomTender / Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can both substitute your commander for the above listed combos as well as just being great cards in the deck.

Pemmin's Aura doesn't go infinite, but offers a cheap way to uptap and protect your commander.

Seedborn Muse and Alchemist's Refuge would also be really good here.

You may also like Open Into Wonder / Rogue's Passage / Plaza of Heroes / Spellskite / Thassa's Intervention.

Thanks for the suggestions unstable_anomaly! I played around with some of these to start with but as you'd noticed, with it being Nids Tribal, some didn't fit off the bat. I did playtest with Kindred Discovery and found that between Garruk's Uprising, Temur Ascendancy, Bred for the Hunt and how the mechanic Ravenous works, the 5 mana slot didn't add much to the deck that it didn't already have available so it didn't feel worth playing very often. I like Open Into Wonder but have also noticed that except for a few cases where I can get my token Nids out, my board only has on average 2-4 creatures throughout the game (Mostly due to healthy amounts of table interaction lol) I'm hesitant to put a card in that requires a board state to work at all because of that. I think Pest Infestation is an incredible card and admittedly overlooked it for this deck since it isn't a token deck. However, with how Magus Lucea Kane works, it seems like a no brainer. Thanks for all the suggestions and your time!

This commander is bonkers. Looking forward to building around her myself.

Doesn't look like you're going for the spell slinger route, but Seedborn Muse with any of the instant speed draw spells (Blue Sun's Zenith / Commander's Insight / Diviner's Portent / Drown in Dreams / Even the Score / Pull from Tomorrow / Stroke of Genius / Thassa's Intervention) would be really good here. Could easily draw the whole deck for a Thassa's Oracle / Laboratory Maniac / Jace, Wielder of Mysteries win.

Since you're going the creature based route Kindred Discovery / Herald of Secret Streams / Open Into Wonder.

Some other generic good stuff for a deck like this Nyxbloom Ancient / Selvala, Heart of the Wilds / Mana Reflection / Pest Infestation.

I was shocked at how powerful Zaxara can be. Built the deck as a laugh, played it once, then put it away because it was so far above my playgroup's power level.

As you're playing leyline, consider Rishkar, Peema Renegade or Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter to turn all of your hydras into dorks. Open Into Wonder is surprisingly good, it's a win-con at best. You may also want to look at some of the cards from Quandrix precon (C21), as there's a fair bit of synergy between the decks.

You could use Open Into Wonder to make your thicc creatures unblockable so they don't get spanked

IQuarent on Kykar - under 2 cmc

I love this list! Curious to me why it doesn't have Cyclonic Rift, unless it's a budget thing. Open Into Wonder might also be good. I was thinking that the addition of Burst of Speed or Crashing Drawbridge might help quite a bit, because chaining a bunch of cantrips into all your creatures having haste would be much better for pushing through damage.

I don't mean to be negative, but I don't know what Mana Breach is doing in here. It's going to hurt you for more than your opponents, since your game plan is to chain a bunch of low CMC spells together.

theindigoeffect on Are there any other cards …

I have a Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, and being able to cast Open Into Wonder, subsequently put counters on my creatures, and draw cards is perfect for my deck. Are there any other cards that can imitate that effect? I know Bident of Thassa functions similarly, but I don't have enough fliers to make use of a card like that.
